When you disconnect a device from a port, the Local Manager retains the device's configuration data. You can clear this data and return the port to its factory default configuration using the config system clear port command.
[admin@UplogixLM]# port 2/1 tasman 6300 tios tasman [admin@UplogixLM] (port2/1)]# exit [admin@UplogixLM]# config system clear port 2/1 Clearing port 2/1 will delete all associated data. Continue? (y/n): y port2/1 cleared
Navigate to the port to verify it has been reset to factory defaults:
[admin@UplogixLM]# port 2/1 native
Use an asterisk to clear all ports on a slot. This automatically assumes there are 16 ports on the card, instead of detecting the hardware in use.
[admin@UplogixLM]# config system clear port 1/* Clearing port 1/* will delete all associated data. Continue? (y/n): y port1/1 cleared port1/2 cleared port1/3 cleared port1/4 cleared port1/5 cleared port1/6 cleared port1/7 cleared port1/8 cleared port1/9 cleared port1/10 cleared port1/11 cleared port1/12 cleared port1/13 cleared port1/14 cleared port1/15 cleared port1/16 cleared
If you are removing an option card or virtual slot, use the config system clear slot command to ensure the hardware is completely cleared from the database.
[admin@UplogixLM]# config system clear slot 4 Slot 4 is about to be cleared. Do you want to commit these changes? (y/n): y
